East Central Splits Doubleheader with Northwest


The East Central Community College basketball teams were back in action today at the Bracken-Wood Gymnasium in Decatur hosting Northwest Community College from Senatobia.

At halftime the Lady Rangers were leading the game by 9 points, 33-24. The Lady Warriors came back strong in the third quarter to overcome the deficit and take a 4 point lead in the game, 47-43 however the Lady Rangers surged back in the final quarter to win the game by 5 points, 61-56. The Lady Warriors are now 14-9 overall and 3-6 in the district.

The Warriors would improve on their 3 game winning streak defeating the Rangers by 8 points, 78-70. The Warriors enjoyed a 6 point lead at halftime, 43-37 and continued to outscore the Rangers in the second half. The Warriors are now 18-12 overall and 4-5 in the district.
